Dear Jon,

How did the aligators survive the dinosaurs extinction? Its not like they were anything special, the looked just like the rest of the dinosaurs, and for the most part lived on land. Its so confusing to think about. It could be their metabolism, but what proof is there that other dinosaurs didnt have the same metabolism.

Sincerely,

Sweet Jonman,

Can you explain the eternal mysteries of bumfluff to me? Where does it come from? How can I make it stop? Does this mean I will die without ever having lost a pea up my nose? So many questions need answering! Please help!

Lovingly,

Ima F. Ake

Dear Jonman,

Will there ever be another UK Matameet?

Yours in expectance

I know the answer to that one, and it's 'yes!'

'When will the next meet be?' is a more tricky question.

Current estimates stand at February, possibly near the beginning so I can have a shindig for my birthday, possibly towards the end to celebrate the one year birthday of the forums. So probably in the middle then smile.gif

Oh Mighty Mata,

Can we time it so as to avoid the half-term holidays? I have a Russia trip. Plus I am totally self-centred and expect the entire Meet to revolve around my personal schedule. tongue.gif

Sorry to hijack your thread, Jonman. Just to validate this post: What time will the 12:05 bus arrive at my bus-stop tomorrow afternoon?

Dear Jonman,

My job seems to be wanting to promote me and I don't want to be promoted. I've tried slowing down the pace, sitting on the counters, talking on their phone, sitting on the counters talking on their phone, and yet they still talk about it. Any advice in getting them to stop wanting to promote me?

Sincerely,
Trying damn hard to be lazy.

Right up my alley this one. Simple. Screw around at work some more to make it totally clear that you're not promotable material. Assuming you're still on the cancer sticks, take ciggie breaks every 10 minutes, take 2 hour lunch breaks. Turn up late and leave early. Be as lazy as possible. Dress messy.

Just make sure you stay on the right side of the line that would otherwise make you sackable.

Alternatively, take more abstract measures. Be a bit of a loon. Talk to people that aren't there. Carry bizarre things around (e.g. toilet paper) for no reason. Claim it's your birthday every third day. Call everyone you work with Jeff. Including all the plants at work.

Further proof, as if any were needed, that alligators are actually a super-intelligent race of extra terrestrials who have colonised out planet after the extinction of the dinosaurs. It's my firmly held belief that they were actually behind the extinction of the dinosaurs to remove their potential predators before they set up shop here. In which case, we're sure to be on their list of races to eradicate.

That is why you should never trust an alligator. One asks to borrow a tenner off you? Tell him where to stick it.

Bumfluff (of the bum) is god's way of telling you to stop wearing wooly underpants.

Bumfluff of the face is god's way of telling you to start shaving if you don't want to look white trash. It's worth pointing out that even folk who aren't white will look white trash with bumfluff. It's one of them ineffable truisms of life. You can't eff it if you tried, believe me.

Dear Jonman.

Old people have a habit of sitting next to me on a bus and initiating a painfully slow conversation, even if its just me and them on the bus, and they can sit anywhere they like. Even the disabled ones. in fact, especially the disabled ones.

What am i to do? im painfully aware of the fact i will also one day be old, so i'll feel bad about telling them to go away.

Dear OAP-magnet.

There's a simple solution. Make them not want to sit with you. The world is your mollusc for how you go about achieving this. Here's some suggestiongs:

1 : Acquire a large aggressive and preferably rabid dog/cat/rabbit/badger, and sit it on your lap.

2 : Make sure that you're already involved in a conversation, then it would be rude of them to interrupt. If there's no-one to talk to, then just talk to no-one. They'll think you're bonkers and leave you alone. If they don't leave you alone, you can just be start raving barmy at them, which is fun in and of itself.

3 : Poke anyone, old or otherwise, with a pointy stick if they sit next to you. As long as you consistently poke anyone, they can't accuse you of being ageist.

4 : Pretend to be deaf. Everytime they say something to you, lean towards them, scowl, and scream "PARDON?" at the top of your lungs.

Right, that'll do for starters.

Jonman.

Too true. But patiotism has balls, which is what patriotism is all about. If all there was was matrotism, all we'd do is bake cakes and sew. No bloody fun at all.

Mind you, can't argue with the tits. I guess patriotism could have chap-boobs?

Oh, and officially, quit it with the binary. Enough already.

I went to food place today (I think it was english hence the asking you), and I ordered what I thought was a beef pie. Now I've had beef pot pies, tasty meat carrot n such in a toasty crust. But this pie was crazy, it was cold and had j-ello like stuff in it. And from what I could tell it looked like there was more then one type of meat. So my qeustion is, is there really a meat pie served cold that appears to made with j-ello and smells really funky? If so just what sort of crazy pie is that.
Jonman
Oooh, blimey, Weej. It's tough to pin down one in particular, but here's a few...

- Beef jerky - a yankee thing: they leave meat out in the sun, and it's yummy.
- Salmon jerky - bit of a Seattle delicacy, this. Super good, especially the teriyaki one.
- Fish on toast - tinned sardines/pilchards/sild or the like. They don't call me fish boy for nothing, you know...
- Ben'n'Jerry's frozen yogurt - low fat and almost identical to ice cream. Phish food (of course) being the me fave flave
- Nuts, cashews especially
- Sugar snap peas - sweet, crunchy, yummy and green.
- Sushi - always good, no matter what time of the day
- Beer.

The noble pork pie. Pork pies were soley responsible for the glory of the British Empire in it's heyday, doncha know. Without pork pies, the British would't have been able to eradicate and conquer so many indiginous peoples.

Ooh, I haven't had a pork pie in yonks. Weej? Add pork pies to the list too.

Jeez, yeah, I know what you mean - someone got my girlfriend a freaky doll for her birthday - it's wearing a bright orange romper suit, complete with hood, and has a 'realistic' face that makes it look like a serial dismemberer, and eyes that are dead. DEAD, I tells ya!

Needless to say, it was a stipulation of our continuing relationship that the evil thing not live in the bedroom.

As for your problem, weld the untrustworthy bugger to his stand. Either that, or tie his hands to it, and blindfold him. Not only will that prevent his escaping and murdering, dismembering and eating you in your sleep, but will make him look like a bondage doll, which is entertaining in itself.
LoLo
Hmmmmmmmm. I can't weld him because he is wood. I could try the binding his hands and blindfolding him, however in his sleep state he is quite stiff. Here take a look.



I thank you much for your advice.

Blimey. He already looks like you've chopped his legs off at the knees, and reattached them.

And you can weld him. It'll just hurt him more

Pork pies... Yeah, they're not exactly the most appetising food stuff are they? Did you know the peculiar jelly stuff isn't a byproduct, they actually have a machine to insert it? Bleurgh. They taste okay-ish if you're in the mood for them but I can think of far nicer British food to eat.

Now Cornish pasties, _there's_ a really decent British foodstuff (despite the fact that the Cornish would happily not be part of Britain and, given the choice, would happily sit somewhere mid-Atlantic... like a new Atlantis but with funnier accents wink.gif ).

As far as I can tell it's because we're English. I'm not sure how they feel about the Scots, the Welsh and the Irish. It's traditional for anywhere that is governed by the English to dislike us, even if it has been that way for several hundred years.

Oh, and there are loads of shops that sell 'Cornish' pasties that aren't actually made in Cornwall. They're very defensive about their pasties (one of my drinking friends is Cornish so I have heard many drunken rants about pasties).

Lego, despite being more intelligent than an appreciable quantity of the human race, cannot evolve a consciousness. It can, however, be used to make cool spaceships and cars with lasers on and big revolving spikes of doom. So it's OK in my book.

And the only thing scarier than possessed porcelin dolls is looking down into the toilet and seeing that your poo is radioactive green coloured. That'll learn me for drinking a few gallons of blue curacao and orange juice, won't it now?

Ah, Biblical logical inconsistencys. I rather like them - I really ought to learn more about them so I can be a smartarse to the street-corner-dwelling-god-squad-members. As a result of my lack of knowledge, this is the first I've heard of this. But being me, I can postulate on the hoof, so here we go.

Either:
God didn't make a mistake at all - it was simply that conditons in early humanity changed such that to begin with, the optimum age for a human was 200, and at some point (perhaps due to a population explosion?), it became better for humanity for humans to only live until 100.

Or:
wherever you got that from is a less-than-trustworthy-source.

I'm not going to go any further, as I'll likely end up offending someone - I tend to rant about religion as I just don't get it .

There's actually a little known law of evolutionary metabiophysics that states that an organisms hatred of the English is proportional to it's proximity to England.

Hence, the Scottish, Cornish, French and Welsh think the English are a bunch of chunty-wackers, but the Americans and Australians (both a long way away) think we're alright.

Ah, Biblical logical inconsistencys. I rather like them - I really ought to learn more about them so I can be a smartarse to the street-corner-dwelling-god-squad-members. As a result of my lack of knowledge, this is the first I've heard of this. But being me, I can postulate on the hoof, so here we go.

Either:
God didn't make a mistake at all - it was simply that conditons in early humanity changed such that to begin with, the optimum age for a human was 200, and at some point (perhaps due to a population explosion?), it became better for humanity for humans to only live until 100.

Or:
wherever you got that from is a less-than-trustworthy-source.

I'm not going to go any further, as I'll likely end up offending someone - I tend to rant about religion as I just don't get it .

just what is a "cornish pastie".. Is it like corn fritters or something huh.gif

and what does a pork pie taste like. The fact that it smelt bad was cold meat and j-ello, with the fact that it jiggled kinda made me throw it in the gabage.





Mmm, pasties. Technically, it's just a meat pie with vegetables, but in reality, there's a sublime magnificence to the subtle blend of premium steak, fresh sweet vegetables, a wonderfully subtle blend of spices, and crisp, yet squadgy pastry.


Jeez, my mouth is watering now....

Now I'm freakin' starving....

No, you see, that's what I'm saying. Maybe he was right all along.

It's like reading a book at home in the afternoon. You start off making the right decision not to turn the lights on, as it's light outside, and you can see the book. But, the sun starts to set, so you need to change that decision and turn the lights on.

You weren't wrong to not turn the lights on in the first place, but the situation changed. That what life is - it's dynamic innit?

So, I'm saying that God could well have been ineffably correct in all his heavenly glory and wotnot to change the age.

Personally, sounds like a load of old claptrap to me, but that's just my personal opinion, and no-one should set any store by it.

There's actually a little known law of evolutionary metabiophysics that states that an organisms hatred of the English is proportional to it's proximity to England.

Hence, the Scottish, Cornish, French and Welsh think the English are a bunch of chunty-wackers, but the Americans and Australians (both a long way away) think we're alright.

Mainly because americans lump the Scottish and Welsh in the English bracket wink.gif
